All Wrapped Up

The wrapped outerwear is versatile, tied or untied. Worn as either a cover-up over your bikini during the day, a chic statement with your summer dress or a cozy addition on a chilly night, they celebrate the free and easy mantra.

The wraparound dresses offer a fancier option for summer parties.

Forever Tweed

Tweed, a woolen fabric borrowed from menswear by Mademoiselle Chanel, has become an essential part of the Chanel style. The different kinds of thread that make up this fabric give it unique, irregular appearance. Creating different motifs and style, tweed has been left unlined for better fluidity and a more carefree appearance.

Chiffon Chic

Black chiffon long jackets, dresses, skirts and blouses create a lustrous and sexy look that can be worn during the day over a swimsuit, or at night with an embroidered bandeau top and jeans. Worn over bare skin, it becomes a déshabillé that's chic for any occasion.

Co-ord Pieces

Inspired by the co-ord (co-ordinated look) trend in the 1960s and 1970s, Chanel reimagines two-piece outfits with more sophistication and flair. Sticking to their roots, the tweed and stripes are designed for subtle easy-to-match styling. Mix and match these co-ord outfits for a bolder look.

Tiny Titans

Virginie Viard paired the collection with small bags that are easy to carry everywhere. Adorned with braided chains, these tiny titans make quite a big statement about your island look.
